Goofs

The .45 that Cassie's father gives her at the camp only has 1 ammo clip, and he doesn't give her any more ammo. After she fires the .45 while running on the freeway, the gun makes an audible "click", signifying that the clip has been emptied and she's out of ammo. After she finds her gun at Evan's house, she pulls the clip from it and a fully loaded clip falls out. See more »

Stay Away From This Movie
17 February 2017 | by erhan-erdil-249-524500See all my reviews

For the first time i am writing a review for a movie. If you are not under 15 years old you should stay away from this movie because its just a really bad movie with some visual effects. The movie was looking good at first 10 minutes but after that everything in the movie started to seems stupid. Ending scene was the worst part of it. Scenario and most of the scenes in the movie is just disaster.
